New York, NY - Monday, December 8, 2008 - AMC announced today that November 2008 was its strongest month ever in total day household ratings, as well as Adult 25-54, Women 25-54, and Adult 18-49 deliveries. November of 2008 also marks the strongest November ever in the network's history for primetime, Adult 25-54, Adult 18-49, and Women 18-49 deliveries. The ratings and delivery growth reinforce AMC's ability to drive appointment television viewing for its movies, and creatively connect iconic titles to various key demographics.

"At AMC we don't just schedule our movies we curate them. These ratings successes validate that strategy, and reinforce that AMC has built a programming platform that super-serves key demographic groups," said Charlie Collier, AMC's President and GM. "AMC remains focused on building customized movie portfolios and providing them with a unique programming infrastructure that can effectively reach any desired audience. The network has never been in a better place and we look forward to continued growth."
